Great topic Charlie! Can’t wait to read the responses.
We find that we encounter a good amount of people who have had rough experiences with trimming machines in the past, so we make sure we do free demos of all of our equipment before people make the purchase. We actually love that process, because we get to see people’s faces when they see quality, customizable automation for the first time in their harvest cycle.
A great example of this came from ‘The Clinic’ in Colorado. They’ve won a couple dozen awards for multiple strains in arguably the toughest, most competitive cannabis state in America. They were 100% hand-trim, having demo’d machines in the past and not finding anything that would live up to their standards.
After a lot of work, Aaron, one of our awesome Colorado Sales Managers, got his foot in the door and did a demo for all their top brass. They even chose very delicate strains to use in the demo, to truly put our machine to the test. The rest is history and you can hear it for yourself here (http://bit.ly/2xlTEjI) in this unpaid feedback clip, which is part of our Cultivator Spotlight series we produce.
Hope this provides some good information for people!
